Visiting Grandma and Grandpa used to mean a drive across town. Now it means a 6 hour road trip to Vegas. My wonderful Aunt Kathy and Uncle Garth have taken Grandma and Grandpa to their home to give them the care and attention that they need. Grandpa's health has been fading fast, and Grandma's memory is going just as quickly (Alzheimer's). So I was really feeling the need to go visit my sweet grandparents and let them know how much they mean to me.
My mom was making the trip to Las Vegas, so Maggie and I tagged along with her. It ended up being the most wonderful weekend. My uncle Shaun and aunt Susan were able to come as well with two of my cousins, Shaylin and Devin. We had such sweet, hilarious, and fun conversations and really enjoyed the time we got to spend together as a family.
I love my family.
